Using CuseeMe video-conferencing, Realaudio broadcasting and other assorted hi/lo tech tools, Fakeshop attempts to build an electronic theatrical device surrounding the subject of public-media as personal-memory. Fakeshop presents:
MULTIPLE DWELLING A Performative Installation with Remote Data Hookup Three Saturdays in June June 6, 13, 20, 1998 8 pm duration: 4 hours MULTIPLE DWELLING is an installation project which will exist simultaneously in a real, physically-constructed space and an artificial, digitally-generated one. It is a techno-poetic response to the theories of Antonin Artaud, Delueze/Guattari and The Critical Art Ensemble on the concept of a "Body without Organs." The installation project is instigated by a scene from the movie "Coma," in which a room full of bodies, involuntary donors of their own organs, float, suspended in a state of perpetual coma. In Multiple Dwelling, these suspended bodies, once comatose, will be shocked to their senses through an overload of audio-visual ephemera and complete technical breakdown. The physical installation will be constructed of industrial-minimalist structures, platforms for observation, scanning and accumulation of bio-data, computers and associated input and output devices. Software programs for the sound and construction of the digital aspect of the installation have been specifically designed for the project by Japanese sound architect, Kondo and Marek Walzcak, a VRML architect.
